4CM and the cables

fx8 Friends How are you?

I want to do 4CM using my own multi-cable.
Is it correct to connect like the attached picture?
Of course, TRS-TS cable is a Humbuster.

4CM doesn't include the cable for Relay switching, you are missing the FX8 OUT [PRE] to Amp input.

Humbusters should be used on the FX8 OUTS only (Labeled on the back of the FX8)

4CM Connections:
  • Instrument cable from FX8 IN [PRE] to Guitar
  • Humbuster cable from FX8 OUT [PRE} to Amp Input
  • Instrument cable from FX8 IN [POST] to Amp Effects Loop Send
  • Humbuster cable from FX8 OUT [POST] to Amp Effects Loop Return

One more thing,
What is that mean "BALANCED" at under IN POST?
I don't know the technical aspects of it, just that the jack wired to accept a balanced signal for an external source. Maybe someone with the technical savvy can comment. It has never been something I've been concerned with or even thought about when using the FX8 with any of my amps.
